JACK CHEESE CHICKEN & BLACK BEAN ENCHILADAS
Sometimes you need something fast, but yummy! This is a great recipe that I tried last night. It only took about 20 minutes to put together. My husband isn’t a huge Salsa fan, but will usually eat anything that I put in front of him. What a guy! The black beans in this dish are really good. I even put corn niblets & black olives in a couple of them, and we really enjoyed it.
You will need:
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (4-ounce) can diced green chiles
1/3 cup prepared salsa, mild, medium or hot
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
4 (8-inch) flour tortillas
1 1/3 cups shredded Monterey jack and or Cheddar
Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and saute 2 minutes. Add chicken and saute 5 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through. Remove half of the chicken and reserve for another use. Stir in black beans, green chiles, and salsa and simmer 5 minutes, until sauce thickens and reduces. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro. Arrange 4 tortillas on a flat surface. Top each tortilla with an equal amount of chicken mixture. Roll up tortillas and place side by side in a shallow baking dish. Top tortillas with shredded cheese (1/3 cup per tortilla). Bake enchiladas 15 minutes, until cheese is golden and gooey!
